I know a guy who bought his 2018 a year and a half ago who is now sitting on 60,000 miles. Nothing but routine maintenance so far. Don’t see him much. He’s always off somewhere.

My 2018 has over 11,000 on it now with no problems and it will have another 3,000 on it before the end of the month, I still have to get back home from the Humid south east. But I have that and a 2010 to share the 20-24K miles a year I ride. This year, the 2018 gets the "to Alabama and back" miles, but next year will likely be my 2010. As a "Tour" bike, the 2010 is the better bike; as a "Sport" bike the 2018 just edges out the 2010.

Geez, how does a person find the time, money and energy to ride so many miles in a relatively short time? My hats off to him for sure.:thumbup:

I can’t do it myself. Not enough focus or passion.

Even at my most active, the most I’ve ever done in a year was 22,000 spread out over 5 bikes.

Nowadays I’m lucky to get 9000 miles in a year between two bikes.

Some guys just get the bug. If I were single, I think it might be different, but many of the differences would be for the worse.

- seat split from sun exposure, replaced in warranty
- TPMS inoperative, fixed itself after 500 miles

Sometime in the next few days I will pass the 44,444 mile mark. I hope I remember to take a picture. So far, no issues.
